Major Dude was the first hard route at Dudes.

Ascend the steep face (5.9) just right of a right-facing corner to reach a stance at the base of the overhung face. Move up and left to 6th bolt. Crank over a bulge, and move up right to a jug or shelf below the lip of a small roof. Clip the 7th bolt above the lip & execute a crux sequence using a pinch on a short arête to reach brutal hand jams. Pull over the roof on a flared hand jam to reach a good jug on the right. Finish up overhung face moves.

F.A.: John Flunker & Mark Rolofson on July 19, 2003.


9 bolts / 2 Fixe rings. Tape gloves on both hands.

Any major dude with half a heart surely will tell you my friend
Any minor world that breaks apart falls together again
When the demon is at your door
In the morning it won't be there no more
Any major dude will tell you
